Poker Lake System

The Poker Lake System is a compact paddling area on crown land just west of Carnarvon in Haliburton County. It's perfect for family canoeing, day paddles and 2-3 night trips. The area straddles Hwy 118 west of Carnarvon, with a short-portage network of smaller lakes on the north side and the large multi-bayed Big East Lake on the south side.

This 1:15,000 large-scale map covers the entire paddling area and a little beyond. As usual, the map is waterproof and highlights portages, campsites, rapids and other important features.

Following Chrismar's popularization of this area over 10 years ago with our first Poker Lake & Area Adventure Map®, the local municipality has now implemented a revenue-capturing user-pay system for overnight visits (day-use is free).

Our most recent version includes campsite numbers, day-use and group sites, camper and tent limits by site, and other useful information about recent developments.

Also check out the nearby Frost Centre area, another cottage country canoe route system "put on the map" by Chrismar over 10 years ago.
